A Workers World Public Forum on China, Africa and the U.S.: Who Are the Real Colonialists?
Africa and China have maintained close relationships since the days of the African independence struggles of the 1950s and 1960s which coincided with the early phase of the Chinese Socialist Revolution.
Since 2000 cooperation between independent African states and China has accelerated.
Today China is Africa's largest trading partner and a recent summit in Beijing brought together 50 African governments and the leadership of China.
Come to this public meeting to talk about who the real colonialists and imperialists are: the U.S. and its allies in Europe. Dinner will be served at this event.
